Not sure if this was the right place for this but here goes.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Hello all, so I'm trying to get an intuitive grasp of the Clausius Clapeyron relation dP/dT= L/TdelV. Where L is the latent heat of the phase transition. What I've got so far is this; the relation tells you how much extra pressure must be exerted on a system in order to change its phase for every degree it is away from the temperature it changes phase at 1 atm. Is this correct?

Also the Tempertaure used in the equation would be the temperature of the phase change at standard conditions right? Thank you for the help
